Six big Tamil films

Tamil movies to watch out for:
Dasavatharam: Kamal Hassan, Asin, Mallika Sherawat. Story about smuggling of idols(?). Kamal plays 10 roles doing one better that Sivaji in Navarathri. Dir: K.S. Ravikumar
Sivaji: Rajnikanth, Shreya. Director Shankar joins up with the superstar in this movie produced by Sivaji Productions. My heart sinks when I see the publicity stills, but hope the movie is better.
Pokkiri: Prabhu Deva turns director realising his adolescent dream. Vijay and Asin team up again. Deva has already made his debut in Telugu with this movie.
Bhima: Vikram has to live up to the audience's expectations after the failure of Majaa. I want him to pull it off. This movie is produced by A.M. Rathnam.
Aazhvar: I have almost give up hope on Ajith Kumar, who is always on the comeback trail.
The above five films put together cost over Rs 100 crore to make, says Kumudham. This is a first in Tamil.
Naan Kadhavul: A film caught up in a tremendous amount controversy over casting and pre-production expenditure. Dir: Bala.
